This is a lovely cosy jacket with its fleece inside. The outside texture is not smooth, but it is interesting and I hope it does not pill over time. This could be used as a coat on an autumn day, or to really snuggle up in on a winter's evening if you want to feel really cosy.On my 5' frame it comes to mid-thigh level. I will have to shorten the sleeves, not a problem. I think it will be versatile.
